A last-minute venue switch to the Westland In-Shape Club in Stockton didn’t slow down the UC Davis women’s tennis team as the Aggies captured every set of a 7-0 win over Eastern Washington on Wednesday.

Not only was the match moved from the friendly confines of the Mayra Welch Tennis Center, but the Eagles (3-12) had a flight to catch at 2 p.m., putting a time limit on the event.

That was no problem for UCD (8-6) as it cruised to six quick singles victories with time to spare, which it used to win the only doubles outing it needed to clinch the match.

The victory was the Aggies’ fifth in six dual matches.

UCD’s Frederique Sleiffer breezed past Alyssa Nagai 6-0, 6-0 to record her fourth singles triumph of the season and Melissa Kobayakawa had similar success at No. 2, dropping just one game in her straight-set victory.

Aggies Kamila Kecki, Tiffany Pham and Megan Heneghan each lost only two games in their respective singles wins before Nicole Koehly completed the sweep with her 6-3, 6-4 victory at No. 3.

Heneghan then teamed with Kobayakawa for the duo’s eighth straight doubles win, 8-4 at No. 1, and that was all UCD needed as EWU forfeited the No. 3 match.

The Aggies get a true home match on Sunday as Portland visits Marya Welch Tennis Center at 10 a.m.
